Awards & Musicals

Everyone loves events. The glamour, the dazzle and the adrenalin rush for those in the business of planning them. Big events. Small events. It is the heart and soul of our industry. It is the place where the most learning happens and where superstars are unearthed.

The SAMPRA Development Fund has undertaken to provide sponsorship opportunities for projects and events that are aligned with SAMPRA’s vision and strategic objectives so if you are hosting an event and you would like us to partner with you, by all means, apply to the Fund.

Your projects and events that are eligible for sponsorship are:

  • music awards; and
  • musicals.
